Content: NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO OR DON’T DO, THIS IS A MUST DO! I cannot stress this anymore. Located about 70kms west of Key West with only two access ways to get there (I.e. ferry ride or sea plane) you will be blown away by this hidden and protected gem. Just make sure to book your tickets way in advance to guarantee yourself a spot. I’d even say to plan your trip to key west around your tickets to Dry Tortugas.

With all their rooms equipped with a full kitchen, I even cooked my breakfast here every morning and had it at this balcony with a view.

Content: Unlike Key West, Islamorada is not as populated and gives more of a small town vibe. Hence the number of restaurants and bars are quiet limited. On asked the hotel staff for a recommendation for dinner that night, I ended up at Robbies. A cute on the beach seafood restaurant. Had some great drinks and a filling dinner and I believe Key Lime Pie for dessert.

Content: Anne’s beach is right outside Caloosa Cove at a walkable distance. This isn’t a private beach but it definitely gave me private beach vibes as I don’t believe a lot of people know about it. It was absolutely beautiful to lay here in the sun and let the shallow waves slight brush against my feet.
